The Winery

Diamond Creek

In 1968, Al Brounstein planted the first Cabernet Sauvignon vines on Diamond Mountain. These vines, planted on four vineyard sites with unique soil: Gravelly Meadow, Lake, Red Rock Terrace, and Volcanic Hill, became the core of Diamond Creek Winery. These vineyards produce a small amount of long-lived wines that are elegant with great depth and richness, honored and cherished by connoisseurs all over the world. Taste the differences imparted to the wine by the distinct soils and micro-climates of Diamond Creek Vineyards – the jewel in the crown of Diamond Mountain.

Tasting Notes

WA100
From the biggest of the three vineyards, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Volcanic Hill comes from pure volcanic, iron-rich, rocky white tufa of volcanic origin. Marginally speaking, this is bluer and blacker than the Red Rock Terrace or Gravelly Meadow. A tour de force of perfection, this wine offers up crème de cassis, blueberry liqueur, licorice, earth, truffle and graphite. It displays spectacular richness, magnificent balance and texture, and a long, incredibly pure finish of close to a minute. This remarkable, full-bodied elixir should drink beautifully for another 30+ years, if not longer.
